How to download and install Windows 10 without using Windows Update

Recommended Posts

I have not been called up to bat yet in the terms of obtaining W10. I was just planning on waiting my turn and reading the reviews while I waited.

I would probably opt for the USB install as well as I have read more success stories going that route.

All in all it took me about 10-15 min to do the update and no issues at all.

i tried that but it asked for a product key

 

You can use the creation tool to update from the pc, and just skip the prompts for a key, it'll activate automatically. For some reason, you can't update from USB without a key. But you can clean install from USB

I give up every time I try to do it it fails and then it tells me that my windows is no longer valid. I have Windows 7 Ultimate and I know it's valid I'm just going to say screw it and just purchased my own key

Give it time to activate, sometimes it takes a few days.

Nah I get that something some kind of smart boot error and then it reverts back to Windows 7 but my key is no longer valid
